the contract terms and either prohibit gag clauses or previsions in these contracts. california has done this through sp 57 recently. 751 prohibits gag clauses once an individual is in a plan. sb 57 went onto prevent gag clauses to hhs qualified entities. they prohibit any clauses that would ban it. so -- they don't require to disclosing to anyone outside the public once you've enrolled in a plan accident so you , so you may not know how much it is when youen role. it's important to know how you want transparency in the system. do you want it at the point of treatment system and all of those are useful, but it's important to think about where that comes in. while these bills -- so you may want to go -- while these bills do help promote price transparency, you may want to go one step forward and mandate disclosure of certain kinds of information or disclose a broader range. another possible legislative move would be to simply settle the trade secret issue and say, pass legislation saying that health care price information does not constitute a trade secret in certain instances or cer
